agony and literally out of her mind. >> reporter: doctors, religious leaders and advocates for the disabled who say some people may be pressured to ask for life-ending medications who opposed it. the law was inspired by 29-year-old brittany menard who ended her own life 11 months ago in oregon because she could not do so legally in california. the new law allows doctors to prescribe legal doses of drugs to patients who have six months to live but with some safeguards >> the law would require that patients make multiple requests within 15 days of the initial request that your own attending physician must make the diagnosis and the prognosis that you are going to die within six months and then there must be a second physician, a consulting physician that comes up with the same determination. >> reporter: one other safeguard, the prescribing doctor must advise the patient that these medications do not have to be used. in his signing statement governor brown said i do not know what i would do if i were
dying in prolonged and exbeing cruciating pain. i am certain, however, that it would be a consider options afforded by this bill and i wouldn't deny that right to others. this law takes effect six months -- three months after the special session ends. that means it will likely go into effect sometime early next year. however, it sunsets after ten years. if the legislature wants to extend this further they will have to revisit this issue sometime between now and then. reporting live in san francisco, i'm chuck copp coppolauck, nbc area news. >> she says her daughter's death was in the in vain. >> when i speekd to her before she passed she said this would

hours after the sentencing an attorney representing three of the victims said he's pursuing a lawsuit against the morgan hill unified school district and possibly the three principals involved because the families believe the district didn't do enough to stop lloyd from molesting his students. >> these molestations occurred despite the presentations of a series of red flags, including multiple sex-based complaints made to three separate principals at paradise valley medical school that are largely ignored. the attorney representing morgan hill unified issued this response saying there's no indication that anybody knew before mr. lloyd was arrested that he engaged in abusive conduct towards any of the girls involved. attorney robert allard says his team is also working on new legislation that will require all educators to go through sexual abuse prevention training. reporting live in san jose,
